Leopard in ink, 10.15.15

Many of you have been doing awesome ink drawings for Inktober, which I just heard about maybe 2 days ago.  So although I’m kind of late to it, last night I decided to do my own ink drawing.  What possessed me to try drawing a leopard, I have no idea.  It’s a really beautiful animal, don’t get me wrong, but I’m surprised I felt up to drawing all the spots.

This actually took way less time than I expected.  Maybe 30-45 minutes?  I drew the basic outline in light pencil then inked it & detailed it with a Micron brush pen (I almost always use a much finer Micron pen, but I’m glad I didn’t this time), except for an 005 pen for the whiskers.

I’m pretty happy with this one!  I guess I see some issues, mostly with anatomy, but hopefully with practice I’ll improve in time.
